26 84 Lumber Staffers Laid Off To Pay for Joe Hardy Wedding

An 84-year-old groom. A 22-year-old bride. A Las Vegas wedding. It has to be paid for - somehow.

And now we know how. 26 staffers were laid off this week from 84 Lumber's corporate offices, according to a report from The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers.

"This was just about enough to cover Joe's wedding costs," said company spokesman Jeff Nobers, referring to 84 Lumber magnate and Fayette County politician Joe Hardy's wedding to Kristin Georgi.

Smart girl. Good for Joe. I'd double check the accuracy of your quote there, though Scott. I happen to know Mr. Nobers and have worked with him professionally as a media rep and can say with certainty that he would never have said that.
